Why learn Cyber Security Risk and Strategy?
You might have heard it before: cyber security is everyone’s responsibility. According to the ABS, there were 693,000 local cyber attacks in 2015, and 60% of those targeted small and medium business. The latest estimates put the price of online crime in Australia at $1 billion per year. You really don’t want to be part of that statistic. For managers, directors and business leaders, there’s never been a more crucial time to upskill in cyber security.
